Hello Everyone

Everthings going well over here in Australia, but I'm
having troulbe with one of my Cephalotus. Its pitchers,
although not completely dead, have shrunken and shrivelled.
I have had it for two years in a four ince "Squat" pot, sitting
in about 1 to 1.5 cm's of water. I am getting a little worried,
because it is the oldest Ceph I have. It is in a mainly Peat based
mix, and is slow growing compared to my other Ceph. It only
produces 2 new pitchers a season. Any Ideas?
Another while I'm here, does anyone know what pourpose
Piperonyl Butoxide has in organic sprays? Maybe thats what
caused the probs when I sprayed som plants with Pyrethrum.

Anyway, Dean the seed is nearly ready, and I'll send it in a few days.

Bye For Now,
